Odd betta color

I've never seen anything like this guy
He is silver with a pearl hue and has an olive green butterfly pattern. I've never seen olive green on a betta. Is that rare or do I just not get out much?

I've never seen a betta in those colors! He's gorgeous! Very very pretty. I'm thinking it's a rare color since greens are usually rarer than most colors.

Yes. I found him in a mall pet store of all places. They had a lot of interesting ones. I also got a female crown tail that is almost neon yellow.

Stunning! I see a lot of them, and never seen one with that shade before. Good find!

The female betta I purchased today has a green almost like that in her bottom fin. I had never seen that color before either. Cute!
